Proven versatile technology for small-medium power requirements

Spohn & Burkhardt wire wound resistors are frequently used for smaller outputs or high ohmic values. The winding consists of chrome nickel wire with a high overload capacity.

The resistor columns are installed in a sturdy frame. They are also available as spare parts.

Housings are available in stainless steel. The frontside cover can be partly or completely removed for commissioning. Optional: thermal switch for protection in case of overload.

Spohn & Burkhardt preferably supplies its wire-wound resistors with an internal cooling fan. In case of higher outputs forced ventilation is possible.

Benefits of Wire Wound Resistors

  • Individually replaceable resistor connecting posts
  • Maximum resistance  value flexibility
  • Any number of taps
  • High resistance values are available for low current applications
  • Surge-proof – high overload capacity
